Together with the launch of the new Iphone 4S they also announced Siri. Siri is a highly advanced voice recognition system built into the iOS5. You might have tried to hold the home button on your iphone for a few seconds. It gives you the previous voice system, but this was not a high end solution and was far away from what Siri is.
Siri is also a intelligent application that know what do to with the voice commands. Lets say you are the limo driver and you are approaching the airport. You are in a large traffic jam and are worried you will be late. You press either the button on the ipad or on the dashboard (we are launching this in 2012). Then you first ask for flight data.
<< Flight Status for flight US383 from New York>>
Then siri will help you out
<< US383 is 45 minutes delayed >>
Maybe you still worry you won’t make it on time. No problem.
<< traffic jam information S Las Vegas Blvd and Sands ave going to Airport>>
Siri will now search for traffic information. Siri can also search for
alternative routes based on traffic information found.
<< There is an expected 30 minute delay on your current route. I suggest you follow my alternative route. I have calculated you will save 20 minutes >>
The benefits are obvious. You save time, you don`t take your eyes of the road and it reduces stress. This is just for the LimoSignage but we are rolling it out as a option on most of our applications. We are now just waiting on Apple and the next iPad launch that will include Siri. And we know that’s not to far away. If you want to hear more about how you can talk to your iPad in your business we’d love to hear from you.
